Yes, That BSA
BSA began in the United Kingdom as the Birmingham Small Arms Company Limited, producing firearms in Merry Old England from 1869 until freedom died in the UK after all the useful guns were banned there. BSA is also well known for their classic motorcycles, but today, the company makes air rifles in the UK and has a US subsidiary which imports affordable optics from other countries.
Don't Put a Riflescope on an Air Rifle
It's very important that you not put a riflescope of any kind on an air rifle. While riflescopes are designed to handle the recoil of a firearm, even the crushing recoil of a magnum rifle, that recoil is directed one way – back toward the shooter, in the opposite direction of the bullet travel.
An air rifle, on the other hand, has springs which travel forward in a vicious manner, causing a forward motion of the scope while the rifle is recoiling slightly rearward. In addition, the spring vibrates at a frequency which can be detrimental to finely placed optics. All of this adds up to forces that traditional riflescopes just aren't meant to handle, which could lead to expensive repairs to your fancy scopes. BSA scopes like the AR3-9x40 Essential Air Rifle Scope are meant for these demanding conditions.
Sweet 16? Nah, Sweet 22
For rimfire shooters, optics like the BSA Sweet 22 Riflescope 3-9x40mm MOA Duplex 1” Tube are just about perfect. You don't need an $800 scope for your $200 22LR rifle, and BSA knows that. Their Sweet 22 scopes are designed with turrets that compensate for bullet drop with 36, 38, and 40gr 22LR ammo, while the Sweet 17 version is meant for 17HMR rifles firing 20gr ammunition. These scopes will let you push the maximum range of your gun while keeping you from pushing your wallet to its maximum range.
For the budget minded shooter, BSA Optics are an affordable choice backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
